Wow,that looks brilliant..it's about time clubs stopped treating fans(who shell out a fortune each match day for the privilege) as cattle...

A massive step forward.

I agree. Some of the concourse at West Ham is similar, but it's only because it was built for athletics. I can't understand it really, as clubs would make more money if the concourse areas were a bit more hospitable.

These proposals for the east stand will improve the concorse experience pre and post match.  I assume anyone in the ground will be able to use them pre match.

So we do look like we’re at least trying to address the situation.  Who knows? If we cement a Prem place they might even give the south stand concorse a bit of a make over.  But East stand first, that’s where the real fans sit.

I sometimes wonder if some of our epoxy fans think personal comfort and fancy prancy cocktail lounges mean mortar them than the quality of the football!  If this carries on, on here, I seriously think I'll throw in the trowel!

All we need is somewhere simple to get plastered, and bond with our mates.

TUT!

cheese room or temperature controlled seats please.   Its the way of the premier league . ( except Goodison where it's all wooden seats that bruise your ass like a bike seat after a 10 mile ride)

I’d rather not be plastered at the footy.

Thats the point isn't it.

other sports, other venues, its normal to have much better facilities.

but football....i accept that the beer throwing numpties can have a prison interior, but why not something better and less cramped for the rest.

Well quite.  I don't drink at all*, but then that doesn't quite work so well in an otherwise fantastic pun-fest!  ;-)

 

EDIT:

*At the football, that is.  I'm not quite teetotal, but I haven't been plastered since the '80's, and probably now average 3 units a month... double that if on holiday!  LOL!

Don't forget the kids and their mates!......plenty of bonding, ball pit perhaps?

Maybe. Either way it's up to them how they spend their time.

True, I’ve seen them too on the very odd occasion I’ve had to check my bike tyre pressure during the match.

Its odd when you see it, but you’re correct, it’s up to them.
